For the CPR car, yes, the Tichy car with 7/8 ends is a reasonably good model (with the roof modification mentioned earlier).  Intermountain released the Tichy kit as ready to run for CPR a few years ago.  And Rapido will be coming out with this variant soon.

Would the Tichy CP Clone of the USRA single sheathed boxcar (kit no. 4034) be a better starting kit? The body of that kit has 7-8 ends.

Is this identical to the Tichy D&H box car (USRA converted to cement service) ?
